"Leading and Learning examines the administrative roles of school leaders - from "enforcer" to "system builder" to "instructional leader" - as well as the psychological and emotional aspects of the position and the impact of school culture. Fred shares research on the success and structures of professional learning communities (PLCs) and shows how the power of combining PLCs with the practice of reflective storytelling results in better school leadership and professional growth. Woven throughout the book are stories from over 240 interviews with school administrators that will energize readers while generating chuckles and knowing nods." "The book's goal is to provide a model that inspires change in schools and in administrator induction programs. By offering a detailed analysis of effective (and ineffective) leadership, Leading and Learning gives readers a new method for making decisions, solving problems, and working to get things done in their school communities. And by demonstrating the power of reflective storytelling and collaborative learning, it provides school leaders with an effective process for more clearly translating belief into action."--BOOK JACKET.
